Comments:The original model of this home received a third prize in 1958 in a model homes contest that included 200 homes from around the country.
Architectural Comments:Unlike the triangular brick wall found in front of 12923 Hansel or the one that once stood at 415 Electra, this home utilizes a longer screen wall to cover more of the front of the house. It is interesting to note that this appears to be one of the few homes in the neighborhood that still retains the original garage door.
